The Stuka was feared during the German Blitzkriegs of 1939-41 and was a major component of the success of the attacks by providing deadly accurate tactical strikes against enemy armour, communications and transport. With this help from the “flying artillery” the Germans managed to roll through Poland, the Low Countries, France and Russia during the first few years of the war. The Stuka served throughout the war although it was obsolete by 1942, it was continually upgraded and provided with different armament (including 2 37mm anti-tank guns in under wing pods in the G version).
